it most. [applause] and you guys are doing a great job implementing the affordable care act here in connecticut. if any of you know a young person who is uninsured help them get covered at healthcar healthcare.gov . the website works just fine now. they've got until march 31st to sign up, and in some cases it will cost less than your cell phone bill. so check it out. healthcare.gov . and wages and paychecks that let you support a family. a wage, a paycheck that let's you support a family. now, i want to be clear about this because sometimes in our debates with our friends on the other side of the political spectrum this may not be clear, so let me repeat it once again. as americans we understand that some folks are going to earn more than others. we don't resent success. we are thrilled with the opportunities that america affords. our free market economy is the most dynamic on earth. we're thrilled with that. everybody agrees on that. but what we also believe is that nobody who works full time should ever have to raise a family in poverty.

's idea that is simply without merit. act, the affordable care what do you think the rollout of healthcare.gov and all of the proms with that website does for trying to sell this ahead of the 2014 election, and what will happen down the road. on her twitter page -- guest: let's be clear as day on this thing. was aalthcare.gov rollout complete and unmitigated disaster. in the calm of things i am saying, and i will try to get the critics of the health-care law to agree there are good things in it and i will agree there are bad things, that is firmly in the screwup column. it was bad not just in that it was difficult for a lot of americans who wanted to sign up up now they are signing that they can come another thing we should consider, but it also fundamentally played into an idea that government cannot get it right. it has been fixed and it has been working. my state of connecticut, it is working terrifically. played into a notion critics have that the government cannot do anything right. politicalhave implications. the good news is, it has been fixed and americans are signing up in droves.
